BackgroundVolcán Tisingal (also known as Cerro Colorado or Cerro Pecón) lies adjacent to the Costa Rica border in the Talamanca Range of westernmost Panama, NW of Volcán Barú. A large andesitic-dacitic stratovolcano was breached to the SW by edifice collapse, leaving a 7-km-wide horseshoe-shaped caldera. Cerro Picacho, on the NE rim of the caldera, forms the 2986 m high point of the volcano. Two large lava domes, andesitic Cerro Totuma and dacitic Cerro Pelón, were formed in the NW and E sides of the caldera, respectively. Two additional domes, the larger of which is Cerro Pando, lie outside the caldera to the SSW, and another dome, Cerro Punta, is east of the caldera. Potassium-Argon ages for the Volcán Colorado complex range from 1.66 million years to 0.52 million years.
